At long last, a bridge across the narrows…

Stretching the bounds of the terms of the blog, but this one is personal. One of the problems Donegal has always had (before and since independence) is drastically poor transport infrastructure. Especially for people living at the tips of those long, scenically beautiful fingers of land on peninsulas like Fanad and Rosguill. For years the only way across was by boat. And then taxi on to wherever it was you wanted to go. Now, at long last, there is a bridge gradually reaching across the narrows near the end of Mulroy Bay. Thanks to BogFish, we have a photo of a new bridge that will join two of the most beautiful parts of the island (then again, I confess more than a little bias on that score)…
